Nicola Hayes and Hélène Brunet (FRANCE)

Live Music with ' Nicola Hayes and Hélène Brunet ' (FRANCE) at the Tathra Hotel.

Sat 27th April 4 - 7pm
Sun 28th April 4 - 7pm

Free admission.

Nicola Hayes and Hélène Brunet have been making music together for more than 15 years, criss-crossing Brittany and abroad from café, to bar, to concert hall, carrying with them in their backpacks their unique blend of Irish jigs and reels, Cajun two steps, and Old-Timey breakdowns.

Nicola’s own special “austral-irlando-cajun” fiddle style and Hélène’s laúd (Spanish 12-string lute) groove together to draw listeners into a world of seldom-heard traditional tunes, gleaned from master musicians, or rediscovered on old cassettes, unearthed in dusty drawers… between tunes, they delight in sharing stories about musicians, parties, love…life stories! First album, Travelling, 2011. Their second album, The Inner Indian, recorded live in Australia & Brittany, was released in 2016.

"Hélène Brunet and Nicola Hayes are free. Headstrong – strength of air, soul, of mother and earth - Somewhere between the blues, the tradition of everywhere and nowhere, and the insolence of the present. If “folk music” means something, it's when they play." Cécile Even

Chris O’Connor On Tour

Live Music with ' Chris O’Connor ' at the Tathra Hotel.

Sun 5th May 4 - 7pm

Free admission.

Old time fingerpicking Blues. Winner of the Sydney Blues Society 2013 Solo Performer of the year. Played at the 2014 IBC Memphis USA.

———————————————————

Chris O’Connor has had an enduring fascination with the blues of the 1920s and 30s masters, from players such as Son House, Willie McTell and Blind Blake. He uses small bodied 6 string guitar, a rich deep 12 string and a well-worn steel bodied National resonator to accompany his renditions of vintage blues songs.

In performance, his varied repertoire ranges from string-snapping delta blues to hypnotic minor key laments, gospel shouts, slide guitar instrumentals and ragtime songs with sparkling finger picked accompaniment.

O’Connor has been well received at major East Coast blues and folk festivals. In 2014 and again in 2019 he has represented the Sydney Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.

His first CD release Things are looking up(2003) received positive reviews from Australian and US publications. Soup’s Gone Bad his second release (2011) showed a progression to include more original songs alongside the vintage blues but all played with great spirit and humour.

For his current release “I Asked for Water” O’Connor has enlisted piano professor Don Hopkins, harmonica ace Jim Conway and Marcus Holden on mandolin. It shines a light on the work of some of Chris’ favourite blues artists, such as Tommy Johnson, Charley Patton, Memphis Minnie and Kansas Joe, Blind Blake, Tampa Red and Georgia Tom. Putting his own stamp on these songs his enthusiasm for the material really shines through.

Michael Menager Trio

Live Music with ' Michael Menager Trio ' at the Tathra Hotel.

Sun 26th May 4:00 -7:00pm. Free admission.

The Michael Menager Trio was born at Cobargo Folk Festival 2017. Sam Martin (guitar) and Michael Menager (vocals, guitar) signed for the festival as a duo. But at Sam’s last-minute invitation, Dan Efraemson (violin) - from Malumba, a World Music band that Sam also plays in – jumped up on stage. And so it began.

Menager’s lyrics cut along a philosophical edge, his rhythms and melodies cut across the spectrum of bluegrass, folk and blues, and his stories cut through the inner landscape of a poet and traveller – and all of this is framed and embellished by tasteful improvisation from Martin and Efraemson.

Rufino & The Coconuts

Live Music with ' Rufino & The Coconuts ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sat 16th and Sun 17th Feb. 4:30 - 7:30pm. Free admission.

Rufino, violinist and specialist crooner, renowned for his work with Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen, brings his sensational solo show Rufino and the Coconuts to the Tathra Hotel with a full 8 piece band to shake your very bones. 

Rufino the Catalan Casanova has set sail on an incredible solo voyage. Troubled winds, a mutinous crew and a wrecked boat have thrown him on a new and treacherous course into the dark heart of the Caribbean! There - by chance or destiny? - he has found a new band of castaways, troubled geniuses and misfits in the fertile rhythm-rich jungles of the Tropics - forming Rufino and The Coconuts!

The Coconuts provide a brooding backbeat to Rufino’s Euro-melodic stylings and the result is part Afro-Latin Tumbele, part Jamaican Rocksteady, part island holiday sleaze-pop – all wrapped up in a wild Voodoo ritual!

Tathra PUB CHOIR - Every Thursday 6pm

Thursday February 14th from 6pm - 7:30pm
This week session will be led by Kate Burke from Candelo.

TATHRA PUB CHOIR is funded by a $999 grant from Bega Valley Shire Council, part of the Tathra and District Fire Recovery and Resistance grants. Organized by Anne Hamilton-Foster.

PUB CHOIR is a movement that started in Brisbane in 2017, where people of all ages and ability levels get together in a friendly relaxed environment to sing for the enjoyment and endorphins! In an hour and a half friends and strangers learn a well known pop song and perform it as a group. Based on the premise that everyone can sing, we create a non judgemental environment where mistakes are embraced as part of the process. Having a larger group makes it easier to hold harmony parts and create a great sound collectively.
